I picked up Advent Children Bluray at Best Buy for $14.99. The only deal worths mention. Otherwise there is no good deal in a long time.

How random, anyone around Wichita know of any places with grand 'ol deals?

Finally, another Wichita CAG. :applause:

Most of the posters in this thread have been located in the NE part of the state, so a lot of the finds don't apply to us. (Why, oh why, can't Wichita have a Microcenter?)

I have a tough time finding anything in Wichita beyond national deals at big-box retailers like BB. The Kmart on Kellogg used to be a gold mine for great clearances, but they've since moved almost everything in their glass case. And the selection has since been picked over.

Other than that, with the closing of Circuit City, we've pretty much lost out on a lot of good local stuff. Most of my good finds lately have been limited to online deals and trades. Sometimes I do get lucky at Toys 'R Us, though.

I live in KCMO, but I travel to Wichita every other week for work.

CD Tradepost is a great place to find some steals on used games. They have great deals, sales, and staff. The one on Central and Ridge (in the Gordman's parking lot) is the best one in the city.

You can also check their website www.cdtradepost.com to see what the stores have in stock.

For new games, you may have to stick with the big box retailers.

I didn't know that cd trade post had a website that you could use to check inventory. I am a little concerned that it knows my location without me having to type in my zip.

But yeah, I second everyone else's thoughts on lack of deals in Wichita. If only TJ Maxx sold old video games too....

I live down in OP and work in south KC, so I'm checking all over this end of the metro all the time.

Just hasn't been anything good in a long time.

I hear ya, the best deal I've gotten in months wasn't even game related. I found a Belkin HDTV kit on clearance down from $40 for $9.98 at Target. It came with (2) HDMI cables and some sort of electronics cleaning spray w/ cloth.

I'll see some games go on clearance at Target that I wouldn't mind having but lately they don't last past the first drop with is usually a less than impressive 15% off.

I did just think of something worth mentioning.

I'm not sure if you guys up in the north end of the metro have any GAMECOs, but it might be worth checking into if you want an early copy of Halo: Reach.

3 years ago for the launch of Halo 3 the GAMECOs in OP and Olathe broke street date a day early but were charging a $10 kicker to pick it up (so $69.99).

Not sure if they're doing it with Reach, or if $10 extra for an early copy is worth it to most, but just something to keep in mind.

They offered up the same deal for me for a few titles so I bet they'll do it again. Although paying $10 for getting it a day early seems like a bit much for me. ;)

That sounds illegal to me, at the very least dishonest. I've purchased some reasonably good games for $10 so it is definitely not worth it to me.

I also haven't seen many deals around lately but then again I've kind of given up on shopping at B&M stores. The internet is so much more convenient :)

The GAMECO outside of the mall in OP is going out of business at the end of this month. There prices were absolutely absurd, so this isn't some big surprise or anything.

Do you know if they are doing any sales to get rid of the games? And are you talking about that one by Babies/TRU? Cause if it is, I'm not shocked. They had a lousy selection and bad prices. Only Gameco I think is left is the one in the Great Mall.

I'm on board with you two, that companies business strategy has always been terrible. Other than Olathe there's one down in Pittsburg KS. Wonder how long they will last.

On some actual deal related news, I picked up a cherry used copy of Crackdown 2 at the Olathe Half Price Books last night for $20.
There was a good looking copy of Read Dead Redemption for 360 for $30, and a pretty decent looking Alan Wake CE for $44 when I left if anyone's interested.

Ha. I was there the other day and saw all three of those. Almost bought the Crackdown 2 but decided not to because I didn't really care for the demo.

Wow that's a pretty solid deal! I'm going to have to give Half Price Books a look more often.

Manhattan CAG here.

Have to second CD Tradepost for games, blu-rays, etc. What's great is that they can ship an item to your house for $2 from any of their stores, and then they give you a $2 voucher code for your next purchase. Plus you get store credit on everything you buy if you're an all access member. Granted it's only like 5% per item, but I've racked up $40 a few times.

Otherwise had a lot of luck with Craigslist. There's often lots of soldiers who are getting deployed and need their games gone fast. I remember picking up Red Dead Redemption and GTA IV Liberty City Stories (both for PS3) about a month after release for $20 a piece from a guy. For those that feel I was taking advantage, I didn't haggle. That's the price the guy offered.

I saw at Kmart at 95th an Metcalf they have a new Guitar Hero World Tour Bundle (Game, Wireless Guitar, Mic, Wireless Drums) for PS3 clearanced for $50. They had one left. Not a bad deal if you are looking to pick up cheap instruments for PS3.

Of course, with RB 3 coming out on Tuesday, you might defer to all the newer instruments. Looks sweet, but the pro stuff costs a lot

I'm not sure if anyone mentioned it; however, Play'nTrade (in Belton) fixes the RROD for $40. That's the good news. The bad news is that mine RRing'd again 14 days after the 30 repair warranty expired.

So...this time I fixed it with some youtube instructions and a $3 tube of thermal gel from Radio Shack (I already had the torx screwdrivers). The Play n Trade fix will work, but not necessarily for a long time.

I'm just too cheap to upgrade to a slim yet. Maybe on the next RROD.

I also have to recommend CD Tradepost for DVD and Blu-Ray sales (mainly because I work there, if you live in Topeka, come to the Wanamaker store sometime and say hi). If you have an All Access card, you qualify for B2G1 on all DVDs, Blu Rays, and music CDs quite often (we've been doing it for the last few months, not sure what the All Access deal will be for February yet).

Also, the Wanamaker store got robbed recently. If you have any game systems or PS3 games to get rid of, bring them in.

Woah. There is a Play n Trade in Belton now? Where is it located? I only know the main road with the blockbuster, gamestop and vintage stock.

CD Tradepost was always a mixed bag - you never knew what you might find but I got some great treasures at the couple in Lawrence. I wish they had them in Indy, where I am now.

The CD Tradepost in Wichita (Central and Ridge Location) is incredible. The manager there is always great and helps you find what you are looking for. I got Grand Turismo 5 for 35.99 there (no discount).

Plus the All Access card has amazing deals.
